Coronavirus: Boris Johnson things could have gone either way as he thanks NHS.

The PM has said “things could have gone either way” during his time at St Thomas Hospital.

“The NHS has saved my life, no question.” are the words of Boris Johnson.

Following the news that the Prime Minister was discharged from St Thomas Hospital in central London but that he will not immediately return to work to enable his full recovery from coronavirus.

The Prime Minster used a video message on Twitter to pay tribute to the NHS who said “It’s hard to find the words to express my debt.”

He wanted to talk about the personal courage of the doctors, nurses, cleaners, cooks and all the other healthcare workers at St Thomas Hospital.

The Prime Minster took the time to name every individual staff member who steered him away from danger over the past week.

He thanked two nurses Jenny from New Zealand and Luis from Portugal who stood over his bedside for 48 hours when things could have gone either way.

Boris said “The reason in the end my body did start to get enough oxygen was because for every second of the night they were watching and they were thinking and they were caring and making the interventions I needed,”
